Promises to be a fun family breakfast
Making a pancake recipe from scratch has never been easier. It's time to discard the ready pancake mix and make something you know is made from the basic ingredients found in your kitchen.
My family enjoys pancake's as a Sunday treat. Making pancakes is a activity that can easily involve the whole family from making the batter to pouring and flipping the pancakes everybody can lend a hand.
There is no limit on how to eat pancakes and everyone can choose a favourite topping and help to prepare for it too.
Serves 3-4 (makes about 16 pancakes - depending on serving size and how dense the mix is)
Put all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix well at highest level with an electric handmixer adding in the milk until the right consistency is reached.
The pan we use has a diameter of 21 cm and each pancake takes about a 1/4 cup of mixture.
Pre-heat your pan at medium heat. When a water drop dances in the pan it is hot enough. Spread a teaspoon of oil or less in the pan it should lightly cover the surface of the pan. Now fill the first 1/4 cup of mixture into the centre of the pan. Take the pan in your hand and rotate it until the mixture has spread evenly. Don't worry if your
first pancake is not perfect they get better with practise. The first ones may look a bit creative but they will all taste the same.
When the border of the pancake starts browning take a wooden spatula and flip the pancake. In between pancakes cover the pan with oil once more before the next one is spread out. Pile on a plate and set aside until finished then serve immediately.
You can practically put anything you like on top of your pancake, they can be sweet or
Some of our sweet favourites are:
Some of our savoury choices are:
Buckwheat pancakes and other flour alternatives
For buckwheat pancakes replace the spelt with buckwheat everything else stays the same.
Other options are white flower, wholemeal spelt or wheat flour. With the wholemeal varieties you may need a bit less since they are heavier and more filling.
Millet flour and coconut flour work as well but need stirring every time before making a new pancake. This is why we just exchange a quarter of the flour of our choice and mix either millet or coconut flour in.
